Fire ban issued for Hay River Territorial Park

The Department of Industry, Tourism and Investment (ITI) has issued a fire ban in Hay River Territorial Park.

It is in-line with the Town of Hay River’s fire ban which has been in effect for more than a month now.  

The setting and use of fires is prohibited at this park until further notice.

The use of camp-stoves and enclosed BBQs is permitted.

Propane-fuelled burners are also permitted for heating and/or cooking – but must be used within the confines of the fire-pit.
